Looking for a truly impressive gaming experience to play in virtual reality? Theseus from Forge Reply just might be it.
Battle the mighty minotaur in Theseus
Based on the ancient Greek myth, Forge Reply’s latest title is looking like a VR revelation. Not that we’ve played it yet, but the graphics look terrific, and it actually sounds like an engaging game. Honestly, that’s not all that common for VR yet, so it’s notable just for that.
You wake up alone, stranded in a hostile, mysterious place. With Ariadne’s voice as your only guide, you explore alleys and chambers, venturing deep into the heart of the Labyrinth. In the distance, you can see a pillar of light. It shines in the darkness, beckoning you to go ever forward…
You have the chance to unveil the truth behind the Labyrinth, but soon you shall discover that you are not alone. The mighty Minotaur is the ruler of this world, and you are not a welcomed visitor.
A new take on an old tale
Developer Forge Reply promises that Theseus will explore the myth in a new way, and that the game will indeed be a dark, story-driven, title. They also call this a “cinematic experience”, which is interesting, since most VR games tend to play out in first-person, and Theseus definitely looks third-person in nature.
Oh, and don’t think that this game will be devoid of action either. Though the Minotaur is the main baddie for sure, his “minions” will be crawling all over the maze. So I’m guessing that there’ll be a fair share of combat in Theseus as well.
